Richard v. Regional School Unit 57, 17-2200

Held that a school did not unlawfully retaliate against a kindergarten teacher for her advocacy on behalf of students with disabilities. The teacher claimed that she was transferred to a different school and suffered other adverse actions. However, after a bench trial, the district court was not persuaded that her advocacy was the reason for these personnel actions, and thus rejected her claims under the Americans with Disabilities Act and other state and federal statutes. On appeal, the First Circuit affirmed in a 2-1 decision.
